I have no idea what the official names of them are. [user]Roddama[/user] would most likely know.

Today I started struggling with spacewalks again. Started the day with 3 of them in a row and then 0 in like 50 attempts. It's a tricky one for me but I like it alot when it's spiked. In the meantime I did my first UFO and started learning all the juggle and whirlwind stuff.

Keep on it, [user]modraska[/user], you'll get there!

Today I have the pleasure of meeting up with the guys from Kendama Leipzig and Munich, who have spontaneously decided to come to Berlin for the weekend! Happy about that! Yesterday learned from Kendama ISR's Aviram Lugassi how to do Lunar Rovers. ..And I was just done saying how quiet the Kendama scene in Berlin has been lately!

After several days off due to insomnia/bad weather/knee pain/busyness, I tried 6th Dan practice again and passed. 5/20 November. Being able to practice outside makes a big difference for me, it seems.
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

That reminds me of KendaAlex and his "mugen sponsored" trips. It's in between quotes because what he does is to sell a few mugen from his collection to pay for the trip.

Is the freezing connected to you getting the tricks? Well done anyway!

5. (With a big cup catch between each juggle.)
2 is normally my limit!

Today I practiced outside, because I much prefer the space and daylight. But it was breezy and cold, so was a pretty bad practice for me. Pesky winter, bahhhhhh.
I also recorded the trick lists for February's LKO the other day. (They will be released in January.)

5 is quite a lot. I want to get some practice on that with a stringless kendama.
